Last week the onceuponatown tumblr featured a post on photographer Arnold Genthe that mentioned his pre-earthquake photography in San Francisco’s Chinatown.  Above is an assortment of those photos, taken between 1896 and 1906.  The photos come from the Library of Congress, although most of these copies come from a Mashable article, as does this info: 

The Chinatown area of San Francisco was well documented by photographer Arnold Genthe. Genthe emigrated from Germany to San Francisco as a tutor to a wealthy German family. When his contract expired, he stayed in San Francisco and opened a photo studio.

Genthe was fascinated by Chinatown and took hundreds of photographs of the area and its inhabitants. He used a small camera and sometimes captured his subjects covertly. He later cropped some of his images to remove western references.

These images are some of the few that remain of Chinatown prior to the San Francisco earthquake of 1906. Stored in a bank vault, Genthe’s photos had survived the disaster.

The photographer rebuilt his studio and continued to work in and around San Francisco until 1911, when he moved to New York.

But the gig should have happened the previous month, except Paul McCartney went down with a throat infection once the band had arrived in the city.On the right is a ticket for the original concert. The other picture is captioned: ‘John Lennon, with a worried expression, shielding the sick Paul McCartney as they left Portsmouth Guildhall after the Beatles’ show was cancelled.’ (John Lennon with a worried expression shielding the sick Paul McCartney as they left Portsmouth Guildhall after the Beatles show was cancelled in November 1963. But it was re-scheduled for December of that year. PP821 ENGPPP00120130807122627)

I've recently started sending nudes, how do I make sure I keep them secure? It's fun but I'm nervous about getting hacked. I don't put my face in them, but still.

there’s an app called calculator plus (i have an iphone so i’m not sure if it’s available for android but i think it might be) that looks and acts like a calculator but it’s actually a password protected photo vault. i’ve used it for a while. it’s free and it hasn’t failed me yet. the only thing is that if you delete the app or lose your phone you’ll lose everything- but other than that it’s pretty good. nobody can access it but you, so it feels way more secure than just having nudes in your camera roll.
